Guess what? I know the Guess Who!
In all honesty, I only went to tonight’s concert because my hubby had to leave the Fair early for a meeting and a friend is a Guess Who fan. She wasn’t sure her family would last past the first song (she was right.) People-watching is always fun so I figured I had nothing to lose other than possibly some hearing. So off to the Guess Who concert I went.
Well, WOW! I had so much fun! These guys – some whom have been with the Canadian band in some form for over 50 years – can still rock it. Strong voices, great guitar solos, air kicks, fun banter, interaction with the audience – they had it all. Go figure: the concert I was least interested in seeing turned out to be the best of them all.
I thought I only knew one song by The Guess Who – “American Woman.” I think my friend was tickled every time a song got about 15 seconds in and I looked at her in disbelief and mouthed, “I KNOW THIS ONE!!” I knew maybe a half-dozen of the songs. I might have to look into downloading a Greatest Hits album.
The crowd was the lightest of the three concerts I attended but definitely the most lively. Many people were on their feet most of the concert, and people of all ages were singing along to a lot of the songs. The few, the fanatic.
The concert ended with the surprise (to me) hit “No Time.” I was on my feet, singing, clapping, yelling, swaying, and realizing that a 2-month-old sprained knee should limit one’s dance moves. But oh, it was worth it.
Thanks for the blast of an evening, Guess Who!!
